COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aleģ is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Aleģ is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentuckyís finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

Had this the other day and loved it. Poured in a nice wide mouthed glass to let the the aroma out. The taste had a faint bourbon hint, with some slight oak after taste. Loved it, and highly recommend. As stated it is a sipping beer, alcohol content is over 8%

Bottle. Clean, amber in colour with a small head. In aroma caramel malt, bourbon, oak. In taste malty, nutty with vanilla and coconut. Pleasant warming from alcohol, medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bourbon flavour. Really smooth, silky. Nice beer.

Draft at Dulles. Pours deep amber with a quickly fading head. Aromas were bready and alcoholic. Similar flavors that were really bourbon and wood but not much else. Just didnít please me like I expected

Very enjoyable beer. The bourbon barrel never really came through for me but it did have a nice vanilla undertone. Even though the bourbon didn't come out, it's still a solid ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eh, kind of expecting more from this! Pours amber w/ a thin white head & some lacing. The aroma is of subtle bourbon as is the taste. Itís fairly thin at over 8% & doesnít have much character other than the bourbon. Itís drinkable but definitely a 1 trick pony!
